Description 

Start the same as Tower One by heading up through the wide, somewhat overhanging lower vertical crack. Then, at ledge, continue straight up the arete. Stay on the crest of the arete, or slightly to the right and use the ample horizontal cracks for protection.

Location 

Trail to this region goes around the eastern base of Totem Pole, along the base of Proto Pipe and then up and south into the Hidden Towers area. A few cairns mark the trail we've cleared. Tower One is the lowermost tower that we've climbed so far.

Protection 

Wide gear for the lower crack, a single rack of small through #3 cams for the arete. No need for nuts.
